CBS New Special Report: Walter Cronkite Announces the Death of LBJ (1973)

The New Democrat

Walter Cronkite announcing the death of one of our strongest and most effective presidents as far as what he was able to get passed in Congress and the amount of people who the legislation benefited. Especially as it dealt with civil rights, but Medicare as well and a President who was always fighting to improve the lives of people who were struggling. Now of course you can argue about a lot of that legislation and what it actually did for people. But he was always trying to do the right thing for people who struggle. Which is a lot more than a lot of other presidents have done.

About Derik Schneider

I’m an easy going guy who is never afraid to crack a joke. I’m almost always in a good mood, I believe the happier you are the better off you’ll be & the longer you’ll live. I believe in living life rather than being alive. Very hard to get me down. I tease because I care. I try to find humor in everything & everyone that I see. I tease anyone that I respect, care about, like, or love. If I’m not joking around with you, or teasing you, it is because I don’t know you well, don’t like you or you don’t mean a whole hell of a lot to me. I blog about a lot of different things, because I have a lot of different interests and knowledgeable about a lot of those areas. How knowledgeable I am, you can decide that for yourself by checking out my blog. And we can talk about what is what in an adult professional manner. And perhaps even learn things from each other that we didn’t know going in.
